You Keep Me Up

Words & Music by S. Britt

 

Got me feeling like I’ve been wasting away

I’m stuck in a corner, and I’m caught in a daze

I haven’t slept all night

I can’t shut off the light

I’m crawling up the walls calling out your name

I’ve been dealing with a detox from your love

You’re my religion, and I need your touch

I haven’t slept in weeks

I’ve got bruises on my feet from all the times that I walked all over you like I said I’d never do

I’m trying, I keep falling awake

I’m dying to get out of this state


 

 

 

How Lovely You Are

Words and Music by S. Britt

 

How lovely you are

In your eyes there are stars

And I’ve got nothing but love for you

I just ran out of steam

I’d rather not make a scene

Cuz I’ve got nothing but love for you

Has anybody told you?

My mistakes are lessons learned

And now I see you out with him

You look right through me and you know it burns

I’d always take your love for granted 

I don’t deserve you, I’m not worth another chance

I understand I left you damaged, abandoned, and stranded alone 

I just gotta know

i just gotta know

Has anybody told you

How lovely you are?

In your eyes there are stars

And I’ve got nothing but love for you

I just ran out of steam 

I’d rather not make a scene

cuz I’ve got nothing but love for you


 

 

 

When The Reaper Comes

Words & Music by S. Britt

 

When the reaper comes 

I will be waiting there to shake his hand 

We’ll talk about all the wrong I’ve done  

With our backs to the Promised Land 

I’ve been waiting for this 

I forget every good thing in my mind 

He’s gonna take me away from this 

You say we all just need a little more time 

But not me 

I’ve seen all there is to see 

It’s either left or right there’s nothing in between 

We’re only sympathetic when it’s something we can see 

And if your dog don’t bite 

Then your dog’s gonna bleed 

It makes you wonder who is really on that leash 

I set myself on fire in the streets tonight 

I laid down in front of that tank but it came looking for a fight 

When the reaper comes 

He’s bringing death 

He’s gonna teach each one of us a lesson we won’t forget 

But not yet... 

Let me finish this cigarette  

When the reaper comes I’ll be waiting right here 

I’m full of love but I’ve given up  

I wanna disappear  

He’s gonna lead me down to the depths of hell while the evil in the world remains 

It might get a little hot but I don’t care I’m gonna dance in the fiery flames 

But not yet just let me finish this cigarette


 

She Was Your Girl

Words & Music by S. Britt

 

I didn’t know (I didn’t know)

I didn’t know (I didn’t know)

I’d tell you so

If I had known

She was your girl

I would have told her to go

If I had known

I didn’t know she was your girl

You can throw me off the deep end

With cinderblocks around my feet, yeah

But she came on to me, yeah

I wish you would believe me

The truth is gonna show

I didn’t know she was your girl 

I didn’t know she was your girl (I didn’t know)

I didn’t know she was your girl (I didn’t know)

I didn’t know she was your girl (I didn’t know)

I didn’t know she was your girl (I didn’t know)

I didn’t know she was your girl, so you’ve got to let it go

I didn’t know she was your girl


 

 

This Time of Year

Words & Music by S.Britt

 

I’m a little unstable this time of year

And she knows

She’s a little bit crazy and it is clear

We just go 

She’s there waiting on me to reach the bottom of the pit

I’m so close

She’s there waiting on me to hit rock bottom again

Here we go

Here we go

She’s waiting on me down there

Waiting on me down there

She’s waiting on me down there

She’s there waiting on me to reach the bottom of the pit

I’m so close

She’s there waiting on me to hit rock bottom again

Here we go

She’s there waiting on me

(Down there)

She’s there waiting on me

(Down there)

She’s there waiting on me to hit rock bottom again

Here we go

Here we go


 

 

Too Much TV

Words & Music by S. Britt

 

And like the vowels of “love”

A wedge has come between us

She’s a firecracker

She’s a firecracker

She’s a firecracker

That girl is a firecracker

She don’t care what you think about her anymore

Why do you try to bring her down

Then you bring her down some more

She has no more reservations

She’ll speak her mind

Without any hesitation

 

She’s dynamite

You were the spark for her to ignite

 

She’s been trying to impress you

She really put on a show

Watching too much television

Thought that’s the way love’s supposed to go

You took advantage of her niceties

And now it’s come to blows

You’re gonna push her over the edge now

‘Til she’s ready to explode

 

Explode!

Explode!

Explode!

She’s gonna give it to you

Explode!

Explode!

You get blown away

Explode!

Explode!

Explode!

She’s gonna give it to you

Explode!

Explode!

Explode!

You get blown away

(Blown away that girl is dynamite)

You get blown away

(Blown away that girl is dynamite)

That girl is a firecracker

She don’t care what you think about her anymore

Why do you try to bring her down

Then you bring her down some more

She has no more reservations

She’ll speak her mind

Without any hesitation

 

She’s dynamite

You were the spark for her to ignite
